These Luxury Homes Offer 4 Compelling Reasons To Move To Northwest Montana

Whether you are looking for adventure or seeking tranquility, there is an undeniable allure to Big Sky Country’s stunning natural landscape with its snow-capped mountains and rolling green fields.

After all, it is here where some of the country’s most famous national parks can be found, along with state treasures like Lone Pine State Park, Wild Horse Island State Park and Therriault Pass. Whatever your speed, you can enjoy an abundance of year-round activities in Montana to keep you active outdoors, including skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding, fly fishing, camping, mountain biking, hiking, hunting, or just breathing in that clean mountain air.

From an off-the-grid masterpiece at Glacier National Park to a private lake retreat, here are four properties to consider moving to in northwest Montana.

Glacier National Adjacent And Off-The Grid

If you have always yearned for the opportunity to live completely “off the grid,” here is your chance. This four-bedroom beauty is located just steps from the Polebridge entrance to Glacier National Park and sits on five private acres in the middle of the wilderness.

Built in 2011, the four-story architectural marvel offers 3,358 square feet of space that tops off with a “cupola” where you can take in 360-degree views of Glacier National Park, Canada and Flathead National Forest.

From solar power and backup generators to several wood-burning stoves, the efficient and self-sufficient house offers a true chance to live off the land. Luxury amenities at this unique octagonal home feature custom tile work, beautiful hardwood floors and a newly built in-law unit that could be used for guests, a home office or to provide additional income.

Casting Interest On Lick Lake

For anyone with a creative spirit and a desire to have your own private lake to fish from, this property offers nearly 63 wide open acres to build the home of your dreams.

Located off a paved county-maintained road on Lick Lake near Glacier National Park, the property offers endless potential with three wells, two septic systems, high-speed fiber and dedicated power. There’s also a newly built 1,200-square-foot shop on premise.

Imagine listening to the serene sounds of a running creek while taking in the spectacular mountain views of Therriault Pass from your newly built front porch. The property is located near four ski resorts and about 45 minutes north of Whitefish and 15 minutes south of Eureka.

Lodge-Style Living Along The Banks Of Flathead Lake

Nothing says Montana living quite like a spectacular log-style lodge, and it’s even better when it comes with frontage along Flathead Lake. The sprawling 9,218-square-foot main residence is accompanied by a two-bedroom guest home and three-bedroom cottage.

With 295 feet of lake frontage and an enormous home designed for entertaining and easy living, it’s easy to see why this mansion was a Parade of Homes winner. From the two-story, light-filled family room with a spectacular floor-to-ceiling fireplace and walls of windows overlooking the lake to the enormous chef’s kitchen and huge pantry, this mega home offers an incredible open floor plan.

There are four guest suites, a game room, bar, sauna, and heated garage while the exterior features exquisite landscaping, a private waterfront pavilion, bar, barbecue grill, two docks and your own private cherry orchard.

Fly-In, Fly-Out Access Near Downtown Whitefish

With stunning views of Whitefish Mountain, this modern 5,720-square-foot beauty is just 1.5 miles from downtown Whitefish. The five-bedroom contemporary was built in 2019 and sits on 2.5 acres.

Stepping inside the eye-catching design reveals modern living spaces featuring massive floor-to-ceiling windows that provide breathtaking mountain views and an open floor plan. A primary suite can be found on the first floor with three more spacious bedrooms upstairs. There are also two chef’s kitchens here and the finished lower level offers an additional en suite bedroom.

Head up to the third floor where you can relax and take in the 360-degree mountain views from the indoor Sundance spa. The sale of the property also includes approved plans for a 2,300-square-foot guest house and airplane hangar.
